Saving Lives and Restoring Hope



Saving America's Horses Alert! BLM 2018 Proposed Budget calls for provisions that IF passed would strip current protections for Wild Horses and Burros and allow the BLM to shoot and kill them, or sell them for slaughter.

America's Wild Horses and Burros Lives at Stake


When public outcry against the recommended killing of 45,000 wild American horses and burros reached mainstream level it caught the attention of some of the most powerful mainstream media outlets. The combination of these factors brought increased exposure to the systemic mistreatment and reckless mismanagement of the wild horses and our public lands. This in turn caused a detrimental backlash of criticism against the government and the BLM.

A recent flurry of subsequent news reports based on statements by BLM spokespersons have headlined a false positive result for America’s horses. This has effectively left the public in the dark. The public has been duped and we believe the public deserves to know that America's wild horses and burros are still in danger.

Following this story on Saving America's Horses Blog:

Saving America's Horses warns the public, "Don't be duped" by misleading headlines and propaganda. America's horses are NOT out of danger.

“BLM spokesperson, Tom Gorey, said in an email that the agency will continue its current policy of caring for unadopted or unsold wild horses and burros and will not sell or send any animals to slaughter."
“BLM is expected to formally respond to the panel at its next meeting within months.”

TRANSLATION: The fate of 45,000 Wild Horses and Burros remains under threat of extermination pending a formal BLM decision, after its next meeting, TBA spring 2017.

Huffington Post:
“The BLM will issue a formal response at the next board meeting in spring 2017."
“Despite the recommendation, the BLM will not euthanize or sell without limitation any healthy animals, agency spokeswoman Courtney Whiteman told The Huffington Post in an email.

TRANSLATION: Selling the animals ‘without limitation’ or under sale authority effectively strips their protection from abuse and slaughter. And since BLM fails to enforce its sale authority policy, countless wild horses and burros remain in danger.

Fox News:
“…we will continue with our current policy, BLM said.”

TRANSLATION: Countless wild horses and burros may continue to be killed under BLM status quo practices.

The Arizona Republic:
“BLM: We do not 'and will not euthanize' wild horses.”

TRANSLATION: The BLM uses a variety of other methods to kill wild horses.

ProPublica: The U.S. Department of Interior Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sold 1,700 captured wild Mustangs to a known kill buyer by the name of Tom Davis, who purchases horses and ships them for slaughter in Mexico. BLM approved the sales to Davis, (who also works as a livestock hauler out of La Jara, Colorado) under the guise that Davis would sell the horses for use in movies in Mexico. Reportedly the BLM began shipping “truckloads and truckloads” of horses to Davis after his neighbor and business associate, Ken Salazar, became Interior Secretary in 2009. Salazar, a fifth-generation rancher, is heavily criticized for his involvement supporting the removal of Mustangs from public lands to make room for livestock grazing. Wild horses are additionally supposed to be protected by appropriations language, passed annually by Congress, which prohibits the BLM from selling captured wild horses for slaughter.

TRANSLATION: BLM wild horses and burros go to slaughter.


America’s horses are NOT protected and they are NOT out of danger.
